Myspace deleted a 500 years old pic of Lucas Cranach!

YES, they did it indeed. Even MYSPACE did it – exactly what I had been criticized in a former post concerning the London undergraound company:

Lucas Cranach censured: see the MYSPACE post
and my former post here on Multiply

Myspace send me the message you can read below! They deleted a pic in my photo album which shows a 1532 painting by Lucas Cranach – a poster for an Cranach exhibition at the Royal Academy of Art. I posted the pic to point out an absurd case of censorship at the London underground where the poster had been banned (but the company apologized and the poster will be allowed, indeed!). Read more at my blog – the pic is still there – they only deleted it at my photos!

It’s absurd when you take a tour at myspace – there are string tangas, sado-maso, agressive female breasts pics as profile pics and more…

MYSPACE HAS CENSURED A WELL-KNOWN 500 years old MASTERPIECE!!!!
